Trouble setting up Ghost droplet on https vs http
I’m trying to create a Ghost droplet via one-click and DNS hosting via Cloudflare, but I’m having trouble accessing the site over https (or a browser like Chrome that automatically uses https). It works on http.
I haven’t logged in with SSH and started the one-click process yet. Just want to get it right before trying to start that. I know that Ghost will ask for the url for setup - and I want to put in the https address not the http address.
I’ve been reading about the installing the Let’s Encrypt SSL: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/website-can-t-be-reached-err_connection_refused - but I can’t actually do anything. When I login with SSH, it automatically starts the Ghost install process and won’t let me do anything like the initial server setup, etc.
